Professor Emeritus

Our aging professor emeritus
has an affectation that annoys us:
he stresses words that end with “èd” –
a mannerism, he claims, he learnèd
(if the story is to be believèd)
in his days when he matriculatèd
(or, as he puts it, “universitatèd”),
which one he’s never...Read More

Grief of Spring
It once carried a powerful hit
The long awaited hint of warm Spring air

The longing for their affection

A Poet's Ego: Inside-Out

Inside-Out with all the psycho-babble.
Multifaceted melange - merry and melancholy.

My pen’s prophetic,

Hazel eyes that ponder divinity:
See the world.
See God through the world.
See the people.
Empathize with earthly beings.
Fall to my knees.
Seek inspiration.
Grab it with gusto.
Don’t wait for the...Read More

sun is lost again
air is drab,  too close,
perfect affectation to 
play across the landscape
of my muffled mind.

many days have begun 
and/or ended this way.
neighbours send up fire

Divine Messenger
His love indescribable
His presence overwhelming
A child longing to meet its father
Its cry so unbearable
Mangling to the heart; melancholy

So Much Stunned
So much stunned at man's alienation 
even in the man-made world.
Stunned at the human folly to lust for relations
carrying the signboard "Strictly Prohibited".
Wisdom nullified at the foolish acts
and relationships ruined by the misunderstandings
and egocentric behavior.
Consistent silence not willing to bear...Read More

Thomas Kuhn wrote about scientific revolutions
as if scientific theories evolved
at sedately Business As Usual (BAU) pace
until some revolutionary conjecture,
heuristic truth-statement,
suddenly changed scientific metaphysical landscapes,
shaking up orthodox constellations
within and between paradigmatic multicultural relationships,
shifting AnthroWisdom's exegetically proven platform
for understanding and identifying reality

The Shadow Knows Too
Sparring with demons, and dragons and deadheads
It bobs and weaves like a drunken sailor.
Omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient
I'm quite attached to it - joined at the psyche.

Patron Saint of agony, I curse it

Enough of ennui,I may I might
the mind is an enchanting thing,senses
